UNICAF is Africa’s leading online and blended learning higher education provider.

The company provides international-standard post-graduate degree programs to working adults across Africa, but at a price-point that is up to 80 per cent less than the cost of those degrees in the UK or US.

Founded in 2012 by Dr Nicos Nicolaou, UNICAF partners with international universities, and offers its own locally accredited degrees. It has grown rapidly and now reaches approximately 15,000 students, growing at more than 50 per cent each year.

The company has a physical presence in nine African countries, including branch campuses in Malawi and Zambia.
